Bugs reported by the community have played a huge role in the amazing quality of past releases of SQL Server. In SQL Server 2008 we fixed over 1,000 bugs submitted by the SQL Server community prior to release. And in SQL Server 2008 R2 we fixed over 300 Community submitted bugs prior to the release.
